Make a villa in Sophia-Antipolis your home away from home

Holiday rentals in Sophia-Antipolis are part of a collection offered by HomeAway in the Alpes-Maritimes Valleys in the south of France. Sophia-Antipolis apartments are located in a modern residential suburb of Cannes and Antibes, so the neighbourhood is quieter and more sedate than those closer to the coast. The community nature of this area is demonstrated by a central shopping area, with restaurants for Sophia-Antipolis accommodation visitors who prefer eating out, supermarkets for the self-catering fans, and a small play area for children. This region also has the double benefit of being both near the coast and the Alps, so there are a whole slew of activities to enjoy.

Sophia-Antipolis self caterings are sandwiched between two golf courses, so this settlement is great for golf nuts, and the country club has a large number of tennis courts. Accommodation in Sophia-Antipolis is also surrounded by a large forested national park which is great for hiking and biking, and inside, rentals come with all the comforts of home: satellite TV; dishwashers; washer/dryers; large kitchens. There are a host of additional amenities available to provide visitors with the best holiday experience, with everything from swimming pools to barbecue equipment on offer.

Things to do

Beaches: Sophia-Antipolis is about four miles from holiday homes in Antibes and five miles from Cannes, where HomeAway also offers luxury holiday homes if a busier location nearer the sea is preferred. These are easily accessible by bus, and the Antibes train station accesses the main Riviera train line, which stops right at most of the main beaches up and down the Cote d'Azur.

Food and drink: There are restaurants and cafés to be found in the central shopping area, and a few more in the surrounding villages. The urban sprawl closer to the coast raises the number of dining options significantly. The food tends to focus on the local hearty Provencal produce, famous for its blend of French and Mediterranean cuisines.

Outdoor pursuits: Sophia-Antipolis is sandwiched between two golf courses, so golfing enthusiasts are well taken care of; the local country club also has its own driving range and tennis courts. Hikers and bikers are surrounded by the forested hills of a national park, and the Alps and coast are nearby for mountain and watersport activities.

Shopping: The central open-air shopping mall has a range of shops and supermarkets, as well as an internet café, a children's play area, a church, a bakery and a post office. For souvenir shopping, the village of Grasse is only 12 miles away, with a famous range of artisanal, local crafts to choose from.

Weather in Sophia-Antipolis

Sophia-Antipolis' position slightly inland of the Cote d'Azur means the summer temperatures are usually a degree or two cooler than the coast during the long, hot summers. High temperatures typically top out around 28°C, though temperate winters, especially this close to the Alps, means this region serves equally well as a winter destination. Rainfall is sparse and falls mainly in the autumn.

Travel to Sophia-Antipolis

Sophia-Antipolis is only 12 miles from the largest airport serving the Cote d'Azur at Nice. It's also the second busiest airport in France, so just about every major international airline is represented, and direct flights from the UK are common. The town is also well served by buses, and the nearby Antibes train station connects to Nice and the rest of the Riviera. The south of France is also quite driveable from the UK, and trains can get visitors here in around nine hours from London.

Wonderful apartment in heart of Old Town

5 of 5
A fantastic apartment in the heart of the Old Town yet only 5 minutes from the sea, Place Massena, Cours Saleya, Airport bus stops and tram routes to train station. The apartment, with aircon, is beautifully furnished and equipped with everything required for a easy holiday including a stocked kitchen, beach towels and umbrella. Not to mention the lovely bottle of Rose wine and fresh fruit that had been left for us. Marie, Bernard and their delightful daughter gave us a tour of the immediate area which was a really useful orientation. I can't recommend this lovely apartment highly enough.
